My mom had a stroke awhile back and this is a song I wrote
when she was still in the hospital.

It's a cool, warm morning on a January day
And for the first time, I've got nothing to say
So, I slowly eat my breakfast as they talk about the game
And I pray you might have spoken my name

And everybody wants to go on laughing
When everything says it might be time to cry

But I feel alive, see it inside my eyes
The saddest eyes you've ever seen
And I can't let go of someone I need to know
It's not time for you to go, so don't leave me, Maureen

When the sun awoke this morning and gently touched my face
For a moment, I didn't recognize this place
So, I looked inside the mirror and who'd you think I'd see
The very best parts of you staring at me

And everybody wants to go on laughing
When everything says it might be time to cry

But I feel alive, see it inside my eyes
The saddest eyes you've ever seen
And I can't let go of someone I need to know
It's not time for you to go, so don't leave me, Maureen

Well, about two weeks later, she died and in the midst of
all the sadness and the heartache, I was glad about one thing.
I was glad that I'd taken the time to tell my parents just
how much I love them whenever I could. You see, the, the
people in your life, the people in your life that you love,
well, you gotta let them know how you feel cause one day,
that opportunity, it's gonna be gone.

And everybody wants to go on living
When everything says it might be time to die

But I feel alive, I see it inside my eyes
The saddest eyes you've ever seen
And I won't let go of someone I need to know
It's not time for you to go, so don't leave me (don't leave me)
Don't leave me (don't leave me)
Don't leave me (don't leave me), Maureen
